ramps. soon after president obama reacted to the compromise bill. >> under this law, more than 98% of americans and 97% of small businesses will not see their income taxes go up. millions of families will have continued to receive tax credits to help raise their kids and send them to college. companies will continue to receive tax credits for the research they do, the investments they make and the clean energy jobs that they create. and 2 million americans who are out of work but out there looking, pounding the pavement every day, are going to continue to receive unemployment benefits as long as they're actively looking for a job. i am very open to compromise. i agree with democrats and republicans that the aging population and the rising cost of health care makes medicare the biggest contributor to our deficit. i believe we've got to find ways to reform that program without hurting seniors who count on it to survive. and i believe that there's further unnecessary spending in government that we can eliminate. but we can't simply cut our way to prosperity. i will not have another d

the bills that they've already wracked up through the laws that they passed. let me repeat, we can't not pay bills that we've already incurred. if congress refuses to give the united states government the ability to pay these bills on time, the consequences for the entire global economy would be catastrophic, far worse than the impact of a fiscal cliff. people will remember back in 2011 the last time this course of action was threatened, our entire recovery was put at risk, consumer confidence plunged, business investment plunged, the growth dropped. we can't go down that path again. >> while the president says that he won't negotiate, there is another battle brewing in washington, it's been tweeted the gop and its far right tea party members, republicans breaking ranks with their house majority leader eric cantor to vote for a plan, 85 house republicans voted for the deal, 151 republicans voted against the deal, including cantor, and that didn't sit well with the tea party. amy kremer tweeted this "i'm extremely disgusted with what happened in the house tonight. there will be consequences."
laws are in a defensive crouch right now and the time you want to capitalize on that. the only time. you don't want to let any sense of complacency step back and allow the forces time to regroup and bolster their efforts. they will exist. this will not be an easy thing to get done. >> mika, we talked about this happening in shopping malls in other gone and movie theaters in colorado, college campuses in virginia. finally a first grade class in connecticut, in a state that has tougher gun laws in several other states in a community that looked like it should be so shielded from this in a season it's supposed to be about peace. i think it underlined in so many ways why none of us are shielded from this kind of violence unless we force our leaders to do something. >> again, i worry about what andrea mitchell is saying about the concern whether the president and congress has the guts to do something. i would say it would be one of the most disappointing things i have ever witnessed in my entire lifetime if we can't make fundamental changes in our gun laws and not only that, how we handl

[ laughter ] >> whatever happened to him? >> joking aside, there was strong bipartisan support for mrs. clinton to testify before the there could be movement on confirming her successor. but that was before we knew about the blood clot. one published report now suggesting the third week of january is the earliest we can expect that testimony. rick? >> rick: catherine herridge, thanks very much. pennsylvania governor tom corbett says that the punishment stemming from the penn state child rape scandal are, quote, illegal and he says is he going to sue. the issue here is how the ncaa plans to spend the $60 million it find the university. a jury convicted former football coach jerry sandusky for abusing a number of young boys over a long time. in some cases the abuse happened at penn state athletic facilities. the ncaa slapping the school with a record fine and banning the football team from bowl games for four years, among other things. governor corbett reportedly filed the

this shows a lack of judgment by the newspaper, and i think that we should not be stigmatizing every law-abiding gun owner out there and i think particularly after newtown, let's engage in a conversation about sensible policies that going owners, including probably many of these people whose names were printed in the paper and most americans agree on, like background checks for all gun sales and getting military style assault weapons off the streets and other sensible policies. >> the interesting thing about this, apparently these gun permits are for handguns only because you can't find out who owns let's say a semiautomatic assault rifle. those things aren't made public. why is that? >> well, that is a serious problem, the gun lobby has exerted its pressure to keep a lot of very important crime gun data secret, for example, there are restrictions which now prevent us from finding out which gun dealers supply most crimin criminals. gun lobbyists shut it down with friends in congress which protects corrupt gun dealers. most law-abiding gun dealers would like to expose the bad ones. >> so
and better from my perspective, he's not the nominee to begin with. >> rush limbaugh did call a law student a slut and a prostitute for wanting to have insurance covered for her contraception. i presume you wouldn't view what as absurd or entertaining, you'd view that as pretty offensive. >> of course not. of course, as i said before. i want to spend my time talking about how we can grow the economy. what i'd like to talk about which is offensive, which is governor romney out there for almost a year telling the people in the republican primary that he never advocated that romneycare would be a federal model, that he never advocated for an individual mandate that government at the federal level require people to buy insurance. now we find on several occasions just in the past week article after article, interview after interview where governor romney did just that in 2009. now, to me that's offensive. >> is he a liar then? >> well, this goes to the snobbish issue, which is he clearly did not tell the truth, that you don't necessarily go and, you know, accuse the person on a personal level, y

republicans passing the senate bill. i will sign a law that will raise taxes on wealthiest 2% of americans. it could have sent the economy back into a recession. it appeared the bill was headed for defeat. house republicans had not want to raise taxes without significant cuts. >> there is no spending cuts. we're adding $4 billion a day to the debt. we feel like the senate bill failed miserably. >> but republicans decided to the to lengthen the fight. >> what is the alternative? go out $4 trillion of tax hikes for the american people, market uncertain. >> the bill shields people earning less than $400,000 a year from tax increases and extends unemployment benefits for roughly 2 million people. what it does not do is raise the so-called debt ceiling. in two months the government will reach its limit on borrowing, not to mention the bill delays larjts cuts to the pentagon and other government programs. >> reporter: so in march we may see another round of fighting. president obama says he hopes congress can reach an agreement with a little less drama. >> katie: what are the chances that republ

. they have passed only 219 bills into law making it 100 bills behind the 104th congress who until now has been the most do-nothing of the do-nothing congress congresses. with this, it is no problem to predict the answer to howie mandel's question, no deal. soon to be ex-congressman jason altmeyer who is leaving the establishment. >> good to be here. >> can you tell us, since you are soon to leave that building why your colleagues cannot come to a deal on this issue? >> if you look at the political structure in washington, it is divided government and that is what american people vote for most of the time, and you have a house leadership in particular that has a conference that they represent that is almost evenly split between hard-line conservative tea party-type members and more pro business and anti-tax, and i would say more thoughtful members on issues like this, and then of course, the president sitting down at the other end of pennsylvania avenue, and on the senate, it looks like they are starting to work together better than we are in the house, and that is where the deal will be s
on the facts of any given case as well as the laws of the state of florida. >> in a national broadcast exclusive we are joined by and as a whistleblower william bennett. >> after 9/11, all of the raps came off for nsa, and between the white house, nsa, cia, decided to eliminate the protections of u.s. citizens and collect domestically. they started collecting from commercial -- the one commercial company that i know of that participated, provided over -- on average, 320 million records of communication of u.s. citizen to another citizen into the country. >> we are going to interrupt the broadcast because right now we have just gotten a call from someone in prison in pennsylvania. he is speaking to us for the first time, no lover on death row. >> you probably heard me referred to life as slow death row. it sounds a little dramatic, but it is really more truth to it than hyperbole. that is because of, in terms of lifers, it has the largest percentage in pennsylvania. there is no radiation. all lifers are lifers. as you see, as i have seen, a child going to a meal, what i call the million
to be signed into law. as the vote is tallied we are waiting for the gavel to come down. this ends a back and forth over the last two days new year's eve into new year's day that has been tense on capitol hill to say the least. >>> taking you now to fox news to the house floor. let's listen in. waiting for the final gavel as the house passes the legislation. to avoid the fiscal cliff. the senate passed the legislation early in the morning. the house has now done the same. votes are in. and it is completely a lopsided vote. however, you can see the republicans are outnumbed in their support by double. >> on this vote yeas 257, nays 167. the motion is adopted. without occasion. >> and with that it's official. that the house has moved this piece of legislation. now we'll got to the president to be signed. joining me now on capitol hill, chief congressional correspond mike emmanuel. mike? >> bret, good evening. and it's been quite a day out here on capitol hill in the wee hours of the morning the senate passed this and the question is what would house republicans do? a lot of leadership felt
witness. they chose georgetown law student sandra fluk. darrell issa rejected her as not qualified to speak on the matter. fluk eventually gave her testimony in front of a congressional panel and became a target in the biggest voice of the republican party, rush limbaugh. but before limbaugh could launch his smear campaign against a private citizen, sandra fluk gave her first national interview here on the "ed show." great to have you with us tonight, sandra. now i understand that you had already planned your testimony. you were going to cite some examples of people who could have benefitted from president obama's mandate for birth control coverage. share with us what you would have told that committee today. >> that is what i was there to speak to the committee about. and that's why i was so stunned when chairman issa made the decision to not allow me to speak on behalf of those women, and to say that i was not an appropriate witness, that those women's stories were not appropriate for this committee. i cannot think of who would be more appropriate for the committee to hear from t
's for it to be approved and signed into law. today's the 27th. the senate comes back in session today, the house is in pro-forma so it probably will not do any work. you only have a few days left for lawmakers to make a deal -- ink a deal. the president took off last night from hawaii, but there's a five-hour time difference. time is working against these lawmakers. they will have to figure out something if they want to do anything before new year's. it seems quite likely that we are going to go over this cliff and that whatever happens is going to have to be resolved after january 1. it has been looking like that before the holiday, but certainly now, particularly if you remember for congress broke for the christmas break, speaker raynor was not able to get the backup plan through his caucus, so there was no pressure on democrats to try to counter that immediately. senate democrats saying we passed a bill that raises tax rates on incomes over $250,000, we ran on this and this is what we are offering. house republicans were saying, no, we want to negotiate something, figure it out and send it to us. someo

of renewable energy. these things are some of the changes in environmental law relative to emissions -- they are all part of that effort. we have got to do more. we have to build on that. but it is certainly a commitment. one thing we recognize is that it does not have to be a competition between our economy and our health, because renewable energy and clean energy have economic benefits that are pronounced, and people understand that. so we highlighted the issues we felt needed to be highlighted for voters who are going to make the decision in the election, but the president's agenda is reflected in his work, and i expect he will continue to work hard on this issue is. >> let's take these last questions as we wrap this up. >> thanks for coming back to the university of chicago. i have a quick follow up. yourding super pac's -- just now reclaim your concerns about unlimited money in campaign financing. on the other hand, we saw earlier today had democrats were already oiling up their machines for 2014 and 2016. what are the prospects for repealing citizens united or comprehensive cam
did what people in washington usually do he parlayed his fame into lucrative law practice. he parlayed his lucrative law practice into political connections and parlayed his political connections into a john. that was the culmination of francis scott key's political career in 184 when he was appointed to be the district attorney for the city of washington. what he did in that time, i wouldn't say it was as significant as writing "the star-spangled banner" which was obviously an enduring feat but it was very important. an unknown fact about francis scott key that his best friend and brother-in-law was a man named roger taney. roger town any was like key, politically ambitious and, with key's help ascended to jobs in the administration of the andrew jackson. first key helped taney become the u.s. attorney general and then the secretary of the treasury and then in 1836, the chief justice of the supreme court. roger tawney went on to right the dred scott digs in the 1857 which effectively legalized slavery and hastened the coming of the civil war. to key and tawnye were inseparable and inf

. then, enforce the laws. yes, i know. determined killers will always find a way, but we can minimize the opportunities and scale back the scope of destruction. why do we accept the need for driver's licenses or submit to the sometimes humiliating body scans at airports? because it's the law, and deep down we know we're safer for the inconvenience of the law. good laws are hard to come by. civilization, just as hard. the rough and tumble of politics makes them so. but democracy aims for a moral order as just as humanly possible, which means laws that protect the weak and not just the strong. lest we forget. >>> we've seen throughout our history what happens when politics doesn't work, when democracy breaks down. the greatest, most heartbreaking problem was the failure toll solve slavery, a failure that l led to civil war. even then, it took a last act of political courage and prowess to permanently abolish slavery with the 13th amendment to the constitution. this is the story told in the beautiful motion picture "lincoln" starring daniel day lewis and sally field. the film presents th

they are looking for is a common sense approach that says those who are law-abiding should continue to have the right to own a weapon, but that you don't believe that right should be extended to everyone at every time for every type of weapon. >> matt, what i think frank is getting at is that republicans generally in the nra specifically seem outside of the mainstream on gun issues. my perspective is on a range of social issues on abortion rights and same-sex marriage and whatever party is seeming at that moment to be too far to the extreme out of the mainstream is the party that is losing on the issue. i think we may be seeing gun rights as the next sort of war on women issue. what i mean by that is i'm pes niftic that legislation is going to pass the house that's going to change anything at the federal level. i think because republicans are now seeping so far out of the mainstream on this issue, gun control could pully become for the first time a winning issue for democrats to run on. >> i hope you're right. i think wayne la pierre's behavior and the dynamic we are seeing means who knows.

security, it's law enforcement. that's about a third of our budget. and it's not the part of the budget that's driving this -- it's not a part of the spending budget that's driving the deficit and debt much that's being driven by the growth in entitlements, which are becoming particularly for a good reason, which is that the american people are living longer, therefore taking much more money out of programs like medicare than they put in, and i suppose for reasons that are not so good, which is the cost of health care continues to go up. so we proved ourselves incapable of dealing with this crisis as part of the normal process of compromise, and so we created this cliff which was intentionally made so harmful that our assumption was that we would not allow ourselves to go over the cliff. because it would be so hurtful. and, again, that's why i say no deal, in this case, is not better than a bad deal. no deal is the worst deal because it means we go over the cliff. why isual thi is all this happe? for a lot of reasons. but one is that there are groups within both great political parties
